I have read a lot about it, but I can't really find what I want.The idea is: I have got some shapes from an architect to build a facade, a curtain wall for a house. The surfaces are all triangles in different directions. I would like to import these surfaces (dwg) into my Revit-file and then use them to build a curtainwall on them.

I can get my dwg-file imported, I can clean it with the visibility and layers. But I cannot use this surfaces. They are just objects in my Revitfile. If I extrude them, It becomes a projection on my floorlevel.

I hope somebody can help me,

Thanks

Got a picture?

Are you able to recreate the form in Dynamo or in Revit itself?  Otherwise, I've never got CAD to work as a surface host for anything in Revit.

Hi,

Here is the picture of a part of it that I'm using as a test.

I haven't been able to recreate it in Revit 100% correctly because I can't get to snap the points of the imported dwg-file. It is just sitting there as a 3D image. I can't really use it.

Try Adaptive components? Create an adaptive component family on Revit.

I'm not to familiar with this part of Revit but I'm sure there are tutorials out there that can help you.
